Cantina Zaccagnini Tralcetto Montepulciano 2019
Intense violet robe. Aromas of plums and ripe blackberry. Each sip delivers a mouthful of ripe berries, leather and black pepper with subtle hints of oregano, dried herbs, and a touch of vanilla; all leading to a dry, supple finish. Pair with assertive, full-flavored, country-style cooking, such as venison or rabbit stew, ossobuco, roast leg of lamb, spaghetti puttanesca, pasta with sausage, pepper, and onions, or roast duck with green peppercorn sauce.
Established in 1978, the Azienda Agricola Ciccio Zaccagnini estate began as a small family vineyard producing a mere 1,000 bottles a year.Today, the estate stretches 500 acres alongside the Rome-Pescara highway, located in Bolognano in the Pescara province. A little more than 30 years later, Zaccagnini's production capability has grown to 500,000 cases of premium wine a year.
